In the morning race he scored his tenth podium of the season, with the one he could draw with Rees in general. In the second race, a problem with the gear of his Porsche 911 GT3 Cup made him start from the pit-lane. With nothing to lose the Spanish driver began his own crusade to try to hunt down the drivers in front, reaching the sixth place after overtaking Rees, gaining the point that will put him back in third place overall.

I feel happy because it was a weekend in which I have been very competitive, in water I felt comfortable with a fast pace so I’ve toyed with the pole, but Meadows in the last stint could beat me after leading all the race“- says Victor.

I really enjoyed this circuit, it has been two good days though the gear problems in the second set. It was a shame because after seeing the pace of the training I could see myself fighting for the top two spots, but in general I’m happy that we have recovered the third place of the general, which was my main goal. “- Sentence.
